    John Tenniel Complete Bio & Career

    Sir John Tenniel is very famous Victorian time English illustrator, political cartoonist and graphic humourist whose prominence grew too much in the second half of the 19th century. He had even been knighted for the artistic achievements in 1893.
    His memory is especially livid because of his success as the principal political cartoonist for the Punch magazine for over 50 years and his illustrations in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There by Lewis Carroll.He was quite content to stay out of the limelight and would not be affected by competition or change. Tenniel had received a serious eye wound from his father’s foil while practicing with him. Tennis had gradually lost his eyesight in the right eye but did not ever tell this to his father so that he would not be upset further.
    In 1842, Tenniel had become a student of the Royal Academy of Arts by probation. This is because he had submitted several copies of classical sculptures for the necessary admission portfolio. He had studied classical sculptures through painting but was frustrated that was never taught to draw. The classical statues from London’s Townley gallery, copied illustrations from the books of costumes, the animals from the zoo and the actors from the London theatres were drawn by Tenniel during this phase. He was honoured with a Google Doodle on 28-02-2020.
    The first book illustration by John Tenniel was The Book of British Ballads by Samuel Carter Hall in 1842. He had also won the opportunity to design the mural decoration of the new Palace of Westminster through the House of Lords competition. He had also received a 200-pound premium. He had contributed numerous cartoons, minor drawings, many double page cartoons and others. Tenniel had drawn ninety-two drawings for Lewis Carroll’s works – Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There. He was honored with a farewell banquet in January 1901 when he retired.
